(CitizensOutpost) In a joint statement from Richard Burr of North Carolina and Mark Warner of Virginia, the Senate Intelligence Committee concluded that there were “no indications that Trump Tower was the subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government either before or after Election Day 2016.”
Their statement follows House Speaker Paul Ryan’s saying earlier that “no such wiretap existed,” citing intelligence reports to House leaders.
“The intelligence committees, in their continuing, widening, ongoing investigations of all things Russia, got to the bottom — at least so far with respect to our intelligence community — that no such wiretap existed,” Ryan said at a morning news conference.
The Senate committee’s interesting choice of words ” subject of surveillance by any element of the United States government” may be the truth, however carefully crafted in light of recent claims by Judge Napolitano that “three intel sources” said Obama looked to a British agency to spy on Trump. In an interview with Tucker Carlson that aired on Wednesday night, Trump stated about the wiretapping claims: “I think you will see some interesting things going to the forefront over the next few weeks.”
